Chapter 11: On the emotions that spark innovative and entrepreneurial behaviors in employees

Fabian Bernhard


During the past years academic scholars and practitioners have become increasingly attracted by the role of emotions in entrepreneurship. This interest is warranted as several studies underpin the role affect can play in our creative thinking and the implementation of new ideas. Accordingly, people in business have started asking which emotions may be particularly beneficial in initiating new entrepreneurial endeavours. By understanding which feeling fosters and which prevents entrepreneurship, one could pursue strategies towards a favourable emotional climate that enhances innovative thinking and behaving. This chapter aims at offering a first response to this pressing question by providing a brief overview on the current state of research of how affect relates to innovative and entrepreneurial behaviours.
